Hello, Harry Potter fans! As you may or may not know, there is news a’rumbling about a brand new adult novel by our favorite author, J. K. Rowling. This book, entitled The Casual Vacancy, will be published on Thursday, September 27th, and there are many people who have already pre-ordered their copy from their local library.
J.K. Rowling’s publisher, Little Brown Book Group, is (not surprisingly) hush-hush on the specific details of her first adult novel. As far as we know, many of her original fans are now in their twenties, and I’m sure a big reason for the new book was to keep her main fan base going.
According to USA TODAY, “the book will be set in an English town called Pagford where things are not as idyllic as they seem on the surface.” The Little Brown Book Group says the book will be “darkly comic, thought provoking, and constantly surprising”. Goodreads.com has also given a short summary of the book here. Order your copy at the Woodridge Public Library today!
